The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body's soft tissues during physical activity. It can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
This treatment is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from sports massage.
Your sports massage will be deeper and more intense. It is based on the various elements of Swedish massage and incorporates a combination of other techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response techniques. The aim of the treatment is to bring about optimum performance and to provide injury-free training and minimise post event injuries.
Benefits and Effects
There are three areas where sports massage is used to benefit athletes.
A regular massage treatment programme to help the athlete maintain or improve range of motion and muscle flexibility.
Pre-event and post-event massage
Even with preventative maintenance, muscles cramp, tear, bruise, and ache. Sports massage can speed healing and reduce discomfort during the rehabilitation process.
